Subject: Fascinating

A great travelogue of Jerusalem/Israel made in the 1950's(?) made more fascinating by the historical relevance in these troubled times in the region. Damascus, Palestine and Jerusalem are covered in this newsreel. I have no idea of what the political state was like during this time, but from was shown here, all was at peace. (Was it?)
